Description

The trail peels off of the Bald Mountain Creek Loop early. It immediately makes a creek crossing and connects up with an old logging road.

Stay to the right a 1/4 mile in, as the trail winds along the knob. A well marked trail turns off the logging road around a 1/2 mile.

From here, this well constructed trail switchbacks it way up and around various boulders until it wraps around the summit. After the boulders, the trail is fully passable but somewhat incomplete. Signs are present and red flagging marks the path but the official trail has yet to be cut.
